Entitled “Quality from the mountains – Prosperity for people and territories”, the IXth European Mountain Convention took place in Bilbao (Spain) on 22–24 October 2014, organised by Euromontana (European Association of Mountain areas) and the Basque Government.

During 3 days, 300 mountain stakeholders discussed the opportunities for the development of European mountains given by the new optional quality term “mountain product” and the new Common Agricultural Policy (CAP). Discover here the conclusions of the interactive working sessions.
